The tables will turn on John Freeman at his forthcoming celebration of new book, How To Read A Novelist. Jennifer Egan, author, most recently, of A Visit From the Goon Squad, will interview Freeman about his interviews of some of the great novelists of our time (including her).
Freeman’s new book of interviews with and profiles of fifty-five authors includes seven Nobel Laureates (Toni Morrison, Günter Grass, Nadine Gordimer, Doris Lessing, Imre Kertész, Mo Yan, and Orhan Pamuk), bestselling authors (John Irving, Tom Wolfe), Man Booker Prize winners (Salman Rushdie, Peter Carey, Ian McEwan), National Book Award winners (Philip Roth, Charles Frazier, Don Delillo, Jonathan Franzen, William T. Vollmann and more), and Pulitzer Prize-winners (including Marilynne Robinson, Jennifer Egan), as well as authors who are not well-known, like Hisham Matar and Ayu Utami.
